Plane crazy

It occurred to me on waking up this morning that it's over thirty tears since I last used a box plane. I've spent the rest of the day wondering why I'm upset about it.

What is a box plane?
Tsk. I'm a bit bored by my plain box.

That is a sensible question. Here's one.

I thought you'd trimmed it into a heart and died it green again?

I too had no idea what a box plane is and Im a bloke.

and now i've seen one I now know its the cheese grater thing that you use to make doors fit their frames.

You'd think it was for special boxes, wouldn't you?

Thirty tears? Is that freudian? :)

Major D'Omo said...

Good grief - you mean you used one *after* you stopped woodwork classes in the 70s?

Do you whittle instead?

worm: no, that's a thngy

Scarlet: I'm now going all misty-eyed about dovetail joints

Squirrel: I expect so; everything else seems to be this week

Major: I did, I did! I was crap at it but I tried.

Madame: I'd be concerned about my eyesight
